The final game of Manchester United's season - when is it on, and how can I watch it?

Well, this is it. Congratulations to each and every one of you for making it through this season which, barring a 4-goal feast this afternoon, will be United's lowest scoring in the top flight since 1989-90, when they finished 13th. (Though they did beat Crystal Palace in the FA Cup final that season, a result which may have saved their irascible manager his job ... no, no, let's leave that there.)

That United are still in with a faint shout of the top 4 and the accompanying Champions League place is (a) very amusing, (b) mostly do with Manchester City being rubbish and (c) huge credit to David de Gea, whose brilliance has given an ordinary defence some much-needed gloss. But goalkeepers are as much a part of the team as anybody else, and though 'having a really good one' may not be the most complicated philosophy, it's pretty effective.

So, here are the permutations. Fourth place requires a United win and a City loss (away at Swansea, whose recent form has been pretty good). If that doesn't happen, then fifth place will be secured if United equal or better West Ham's result (away at Stoke, who have been playing with a cigar on for weeks). Should United lose, then a win or a draw for West Ham plus a win for Southampton (at home to a safe and possibly distracted Crystal Palace) will see United drop down to a Moyesian seventh place.
